Had a chance to meet and talk with “Gunny” R. Lee Ermey today. He even palmed me one of his challenge coins while shaking hands which I’m going to take very good care of. At 72 he still had a good firm handshake, it was an honor meeting him.
On August 8th, 2014, student and photographer Devin Mitchell began backpacking/traveling the west coast in search of veteran stories in hopes of documenting these individuals through the art of pictures. The Veteran Vision Project is an independent, privately funded and organized academic photo essay of American military service members through a series of images. The mission is to help veterans heal by providing them with a voice.
We hope all veterans get the support they need. Thank you for your service and sacrifice.
